Nuclear Materials Facilities (by Location or Name)

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) currently regulates fuel cycle facilities and uranium recovery facilities in Illinois, Kentucky, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming. The following map depicts the locations of these facilities, while the Alphabetical List of Mapped Materials Facilities (below the map) identifies each facility by licensee, location, and type.

In addition to these mapped facilities, the NRC and its Agreement States have issued more than 20,000 licenses in the United States for Medical, Industrial, and Academic Uses of source, byproduct, and special nuclear materials. Of these active licenses, approximately 3,800 are administered by the NRC, while the rest are administered by Agreement States. For more detail, see Materials Licensees by State (on this page), or see the following related pages in the NRC's Facility Information Finder:

Uranium Recovery Facility Uranium Recovery Facility Gaseous Diffusion Enrichment Facility Gaseous Diffusion Enrichment Facility
Mixed-Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication Facility Mixed-Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication Facility Gas Centrifuge Enrichment Gas Centrifuge Enrichment Facility
Uranium Fuel Fabrication Facility Uranium Fuel Fabrication Facility Laser Separation Enrichment Facility Laser Separation Enrichment Facility
Uranium Hexafluoride Production (Conversion) Facility Uranium Hexafluoride Production (Conversion) Facility
Region I oversees all materials licensees in Region II.
Region II oversees commercial nuclear fuel processing facilities in Illinois and Ohio (Region III), as well as New Mexico and Washington (Region IV).
Region III oversees materials licensees in Missouri (Region IV).
